“After many years spent first building a hurdy-gurdy from a kit and then building several more hurdy-gurdies from scratch, we collected a catalog of parts, both metal and wood, crafted here in our own shop.
Visiting with hurdy-gurdy players at festivals and on line we discovered that hurdy-gurdy players are an independent and talented lot. Most are tweakers and many have attempted to build their own instrument with varying degrees of success. All have faced the problem of finding or building some of the more difficult parts.
Here at Hurdy-Gurdy Crafters, we would like to offer as much help as you need in the form of parts, plans, and kits based on the lessons we have learned. We also build finished hurdy-gurdies which are ready to play (except for a little tuning). At present we offer Symphonies and guitar bodied hurdy-gurdies.“
